The Virginia Bar Association was founded in 1888 and is the independent voice of the Virginia lawyer, advancing the highest ideals of the profession through advocacy and volunteer service. The VBA's Board of Governors oversees and manages the statewide organization, which assists the legal profession and the community by facilitating information sharing and best practices among lawyers throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and by proposing statutory changes which improve the law.
